The Vegetable Garden
My vegetable garden space is roughly 21 feet by 36 feet and is located on the south side of my property. I have spent the last few years transitioning into a vertical garden with foundation and climber plants. This transition has defined much of how I grow my plants and which plants I choose to grow.
My structures range from various styles of trellises, clay pots for stacking, and wire fencing supports hung along the privacy fence.
I do not spray my garden with pesticides and try to keep it as organic as possible.
The Bee, Butterfly & Bird Garden
For years, I’ve had this idea of a flower and herb garden. This idea has slowly mutated into a Bee, Butterfly & Bird Garden.
After months of planning and designing, I started developing the garden in Spring of 2018 with the understanding that this garden would evolve over time.
The garden is a mix between a formal garden with straight lines and geometrical figures and a country garden with dense planting, nonsymmetrical plants, and a mixture of ornamental and edible plants.
Plants currently include:
- White Horehound
- A Variety of Salvias
- Garden Sage
- A Variety of English Lavenders
- Yarrow, Achillea millefolium, and moonshine
- Echinacea purpurea, white, pink, and yellow varieties
- Shasta Daisy
- English Thyme
